Anavel was born in Puerto Rico and is a graduate of the University of Puerto Rico, where she majored in philosophy. She honed her design chops in Alicante, Spain, one of the most beautiful provinces on Spain’s eastern coast - and an incubator for footwear design talent. After eighteen years working overseas in Spain and Asia for major shoe brands she was inspired to create Caparros Shoes in 1988.
